A loan of $1,450 helped to buy cooking utensils and fabric to resell.


Katy's story

Katy is a married woman who lives in Senegal and has been involved in commerce for a decade already. She owns a shop in the area where she lives and sells kitchen products and different kinds of fabric, like Bazin.

She is a member of a UIMCEC branch and is asking for a loan of 700,000 francs CFA in order to increase her working capital so that she can buy goods to resell.

Generally, she travels around Senegal to procure the goods and products that she sells. She hopes to increase her sales and earnings so that she can improve her family's well-being and increase her working capital.

In the near future, she would like to add to her current business by selling cereals, something she knows from her father and that she finds interesting and profitable.
